Whatever you think of Cher, you have to admit she always keeps us guessing. The actor and singer has made a surprise appearance as the “face of Fall” for fashion designer Marc Jacobs and the results are stunning.

Cher, who is 69, was accompanied by the designer to the Met Gala. He told The New York Times, “This has been a dream of mine for a very, very long time. Other boys were out fascinated by other things. I was like, no, I’d really much rather see what Cher’s wearing this week”.

Jacobs announced the campaign on Instagram, writing “The amazing and beautiful CHER! This is just the beginning…. More to come!!”

Here she is:

Cher joins an esteemed list of Marc Jacobs models, including Sophia Coppola, Dakota Fanning and Victoria Beckham.

She’s also part of a new trend for designers picking more mature models. Last February, 66-year-old Jessica Lange was tapped to be the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty, and in January, 80-year-old writer Joan Didion was announced as the new face of Celine. Singer Joni Mitchell, 71, appeared in Saint Laurent’s black-and-white campaign in January.

This is Cher looking stunning at the Met Gala with Jacobs last month.

Every since her days in Sonny and Cher, the enigmatic singer has revolutionised her look over and over again – some may say she’s gone too far sometimes. But there’s no doubting she has been a fashion icon since the sixties, from her bell bottom jeans to that outfit no one will ever forget in the film clip for ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’

In May 1999, after the Council of Fashion Designers of America recognised Cher with an award for her influence in fashion, Robin Givhan of Los Angeles Times said, “Cher’s Native American showgirl sexpot persona now seems to epitomise the fashion industry’s rush to celebrate ethnicity, adornment and sex appeal”.

  1. Cher has always been attractive and at 68 or so, she’s still very attractive and desirable. A few years ago I saw her perform and her performance was spectacular; polished, professional and yes, very entertaining. My wife said that the only part of her that hasn’t had plastic surgery is her perineum (wife is a midwife) which I thought was a tad unkind. Love Cher!

  2. Cher certainly has got ‘it’! We’re the same age but you wouldn’t look twice at me on the street 🙂

  3. She is amazing, her figure and hair are stunning. I think her face was more interesting before the surgery, though. Good for her, for starting a new job when most are retired at her age.

  4. Women in here would look flawless too if we had the $$$’s to feed the stay young obsession. D

  5. Cher… beautiful, amazingly talented, outrageously outspoken, incredible actress. Favourite movies, Mask and Moonstruck. Isn’t it interesting that Hollywood chose to ignore Cher’s acting talents … and Madonna in ‘Evita’. They can’t handle strong out there talented women.

  6. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had
    been conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me lunch due to
    the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time
    to discuss this issue here on your web site.
